The FM38 Team

Two events that will be granted exclusive use this weekend 18-August to 21-August

This weekend the Milwaukee 443.800MHz central repeater of the FM-38 system will be split off of the network for Milwaukee/Waukesha ARES support of Irish Fest.
What this means is that usual links through the system should be expected to be down from around 2 PM Thursday afternoon August 18 through Sunday night August 21.
Please allow for the ARES traffic by limiting transmissions and giving long pauses. ARES traffic has priority.
We will disconnect from AllStar so the folks that are connected to 2495 can still communicate with each other but the traffic from those systems will not be heard on the rest of the 38 RF Linked network.
Allenton and all repeaters to the North will continue to work normally without AllStar. Madison, Lake Geneva, and Delafield will be off the air for the duration of the event.

Also, the Plymouth and Oshkosh repeaters will also be reserved Sunday Morning for Calumet County Emergency Services to support a bike race around Lake Winnebago. That traffic will have priority. Operations for this event will go on until Noon. This event may be heard throughout the northern chain repeaters.

Normal operations will return Monday morning.
